daughter

As you all know I have a 16yr old daughter. She was in a very bad high school relationship that thankfully ended this summer. She then started dating a guy that was very sweet and treated her well. here's the problem this boy reminds me of the way my ex husband was back in high school. this boy was polite and kind and had absolutely no desire to do anything ambitious with his life. This may sound wrong and I hope it doesn't come out mean but he is just so not what I want for my daughter. Well she broke up with him on Thursday and this kid is still coming over and calling and begging her for another chance. He told me tonight that his life is over so he is going to join the Marine Corp and die before he is 30. I thought we dykes had drama, it seems like nothing compared to the high school drama at my house. Any who the daughter has decided that she is going to be single until she gets through basic training in 2 years. If i can get that lucky i will thank the goddess. On a happy note she ran today in the pouring down rain and had a great finish and put up a great time for the weather. there is no way i would have been able to run 3.2 miles in the mud and rain. We are very proud of her everytime she crosses the finish line!!!!

Wow.
Well, this sounds exactly like what I thought I had to look forward to but was hoping it doesn't actually happen like this in real life. Boys!
She sounds like she has a good head.

Curious - what was her time?

The years when my oldest was 15-17 were so very stressful in my household. I'm so glad it got better...and it will for you, too. She sounds like a great kid!

Margo her time was 25:21 which is slower than normal but great for the conditions. We have been very lucky she is a pretty good kid.

I think I will sell my kids before they hit the teen years. I better get on it, I only have a few more weeks before the boy hits the big 13!

Uh seriously, that is crazy. But what is even more sad is adults pull that child crap so doesn't sounds as bad coming from a kid as it does an adult. LOL

well, i can tell the lovesick boy one thing, if he goes to the Marine corp and ends up at Parris Island, he'll think he died for the entire 13 weeks of boot camp. Maybe it'd do him some good, get some perspective...talk about drama queens...lol
